2.2 Course study components

In order to achieve its aims, this course relies on several fundamental learning components, each with a distinct purpose but all mutually interacting to deliver the learning outcomes for the course. The components are:

  1. the course study guide (which you are currently reading);
  2. the activities;
  3. the readings;
  4. the Diagramming Resource.

My aim here is to illustrate how these components relate to each other in this particular course.

The simplest component is this course's Study Guide which you are reading! This guide serves as a link between Blocks 1 and 2; introduces you to the course theme; and is designed to inform you of the learning opportunities you will have while studying this course.
